Over the years of being an employee, I have seen and felt the void that so many experiences doing work they were not created to do.
First, let’s chat about the perks of being an employee…
There are many who are great employees who love their jobs and functions as an employee without any care in the world and does an exceptional job. Being an employee is a great privilege, and better yet it teaches us good work ethics. Those are the ones who will be happy being an employee and should be treated as a cherished gift to the companies they work for.
There are also those employed at companies employees who won’t desire to be an employee their whole life and are not as passionate about their jobs and just may also be well gifted with the ability to operated effortlessly in those positions. Yet the pressure of convenience and priorities has caused them to become comfortable. Our comfort is what often leads us to settle in positions that were only designed and intended to be stepping stones. Here is where we find ourselves stuck in situations that were only supposed to be a temporary stage in our growth that we now have allowed becoming a barrier between our purpose.
Having a job is necessary and plays a huge role in our lives financially. But the most significant benefit of all is that the production of the position and the role we play as employees. The production we contribute to helps our economy continue to evolve which is amazing. Jobs are the roots that help us to grow the fruit we need and desire. Meaning that jobs help us to obtain the things we want and need in life.
Purpose queen, could it be time to transition from what’s causing you pain?…
While we know how valuable having a job is the reality is that many of us are working at jobs they hate and have other dreams of what they want to do but are too afraid to take the risk required. I know because I too have been there and it’s painful to be at a place laboring to the extent I’ve experienced in my life and the lives of others. Its draining and can be depressing to go to a job where we are not happy. Especially when it’s a job you have to prep yourself up to go to every day while smiling pretending you love it or that everything is ok when inside your desperately desiring for a way out.
Image when the weekend how happy you are until the time comes to go back to that job you hate. This is common when you don’t love what you do. But as adults when we have a responsibility, we don’t make choices based on how we feel but based on priorities and the needs we have. Going to work at a job you don’t like is draining and which could cause it to be a challenge to keep a positive attitude.
Mental and Physical Pain Drainers
Having a variety of jobs ranging from fast food to call-center and office jobs to warehouses I can honestly say I have been on both sides of the fence and understand what goes into different positions or what others are experiencing in the workplace. I was able to identify the jobs I didn’t like and why I didn’t enjoy them, quickly. The jobs we don’t like usually are the ones that provide us with some form of pain rather it’s mental, physically or both. I call them “Pain Drainers.”
Before we end our chat…
Created With a Destiny
We struggle in life working jobs we hate based on many reasons, but when we are working a job, we don’t like it could be a sign that we were created to more. Every one of us was created for a specific position rather than be as an employee, business owner or both.
Living a life of purpose is deep fulfillment, it’s happiness and freedom yet so many people never have an opportunity to experience it. We were all created for a specific purpose to operate in and key areas to function in on this journey called life. First, understand this, you were created and designed unique, and there is nothing about you a mistake.
You are perfect for the purpose in which you were created for and when you find what that is will be the day it all begins to make perfect sense. The pain you may be experiencing in work or a position you’re currently in is should be a sign or prompt, urging you that you were created for more and what you’re currently doing just may not be it.
Last, it’s time to understand who you are…
Over the course of time as we grow through life starting as children and by the time we reach adulthood we’ve taken in so many different opinions and worse, most of which are not necessarily true but based off a perspective, limited beliefs or personal standard of the person or people we look up to. We listen to what others think we should do in our careers and generally in our life as a whole.
Designed for purpose
Understand that your identity, personality, and pain is important for what you are to become in life. The power of your identity has the potential to bring a great transformation in your life and the lives of others. Once you discover the purpose in which you were created for then there will be great doors of opportunity open to you according to the area you are destined to operate and function.
Your thoughts, interest, heart’s desire, and pains all are important intricate parts on your journey to do what you were created to do and matters. What you truly want in life is to find the work you love which in turn will bring the fulfillment for which you are seeking. While it may not be presented exactly the way you vision it to be, know that the things you desire are apart of what you can access and what you deserve.
Let’s end with this…
Did you know?
Everyone on the planet was created with special gifts and talents? Yes, you too were privileged with these gifts and talents and once you discover them is when you can master then and accelerate in the dreams you have and wish to accomplish.
Time and time again we see employees, entrepreneurs and business owners doing work they enjoy or love. We see them put great work and effort into making sure the job or work functions effectively. When you find joy in your work is when you know you’re on the right track.
I know this may sound too good to be true, but here it is, your purpose is embedded inside who you are. An essential key to purpose comes once your ready to learn about yourself, get to the process and put in the necessary time and attention into discovering who you are and reaching your potential.
